Subject:mysql user permission when using raw device instead datafile
View as plain text  

After I had mysql use raw device with innodb instead datafile, I
started mysql
and got an error like following;

021018 14:11:18  mysqld started
021018 14:11:19  InnoDB: Operating system error number 13 in a file
InnoDB: See for installation help.
InnoDB: The error means mysqld does not have the access rights to
InnoDB: the directory.
InnoDB: File name /dev/rd/c0d0p3
InnoDB: Cannot continue operation.
021018 14:11:19  mysqld ended

mysql and all other files' owner is root and I gave "--user=mysql"
option to mysql.
But after omitting the above option, the same error occurred again and
only using
"--user=root" option seems to solve this problem.
Why mysql would not run in the root permission even thoguh it's owner
is root?
Or is there any other problem replating to using raw device?
Can I NOT run mysql as mysql user permission not root?
